How to Draw a Faerie

Step 1.

Defining the pose and draw the outline of the main ways the body. I prefer to start with the head and spine, then attach the rib cage and hips. The limbs are the latest to define, since one can always play with the location of these to give a more dy   

Step 2.

volume and main features to this feeric character. Pointed ears and tiptoe give to her a supernatural look. For the anatomy, I highly recommend using references in order to properly locate areas with pronounced volume (such as breasts, hips and rear)   

Step 3.

Define the silhouette and give some touches of realism, such as waist rolls are formed by being so bent, give it to her a more “fleeshy” look. Establish general characteristics of the face.

Step 4.

Define personality. Give it to her extrange features, such a weird eyebrows and labyrinthic ears. Give her a rather disheveled hair to give it a more wild and natural look. Remember, she is not human!!

Step 5.

Add the wings. These should reflect the personality and element of the fairy. In this case, girl is a forest fairy and the wings seem to have branches and are a bit ungainly.

Description: I've always been a fan of fantasy worlds and creatures from nonexistent worlds. So is that when I asked to draw a fairy, was quite exciting, in fact, this is the first fairy drawing I ever finish, I hope it will be useful for you. I think the most important is to highlight the fact that these creatures are not human beings, they are capricious and impulsive elemental beings so, Its necessary give some features that away a little from the daily human form, perhaps giving a skin color somewhat different than usual,the same with hair and eye color. Obviously the pointy ears are a classic feature of these fantastic beings, but in this case I wanted to give feet and fingers pointed also to highlight the rarity of these creatures. Their wings accrued reflect the item to which they belong or their havitat. in this case, she is a rain and moist forests fairy , an habitat full of mushrooms and fungi,thats why I give her the hallucinogenic color ;)
